Attention all college students, chocolate-lovers and party people: Grandma's classic fudge recipe is about to get a whole lot better. Keep in mind — this simple, no-bake fudge recipe is not for the faint of heart. It's packed with sugary goodness, and it uses a cup of Jack Daniel's for a fairly small pan. In other words, you'll definitely feel it.
There are a few different editions of this fudge, but I picked the simplest recipe I could find. It uses three ingredients and takes under 15 minutes to make, so if you're a lazy cook like me, this is right up your alley. And if you're feeling ambitious, there are lots of other ways to incorporate Jack into your chocolate.
Jack Daniel's No-Bake Fudge
- Prep Time:5 mins
- Cook Time:10 mins
- Total Time:15 mins
- 12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup Jack Daniel's whiskey
- 2 one-pound boxes powdered sugar
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or a double broiler until it turns into a creamy, blended texture.
Mix Jack Daniel's and powdered sugar together in a separate bowl. Stir until it appears well-blended and thick.
Add the Jack and powdered sugar mixture to the melted chocolate. If the mixture becomes too hard to stir, put it in the microwave for 30-40 seconds.
Pour it into a 13x9x2-inch pan and let it sit for a few minutes to allow it to cool.
After a few minutes, cut into the fudge to create your desired bite-sized pieces. When cutting into it, be sure that the outside is cool but the inside is still slightly warm so that it's easy to cut into.
Eat at least 7-10 pieces before hitting the bars. As I mentioned, this fudge has the propensity to turn your baking day into a wild night.
